New Beginnings

Growing up, I always wanted to be a Mom.  Playing house was my favorite thing (if I could talk my sisters into it!)!  If I wasn't playing with them then I was playing with dolls pretending I was their Mom.  The last 5 years I have started off every August walking into the gym at Coulson Tough Elementary.  When I found out I was pregnant with Lucy, I knew I wanted to stay home with her but never saw how that was financially possible.  I cried my first day back to school last year.  Not because I hated my job, but because my heart was torn in 2 places - at school and at home with Lucy.

Sitting at my computer this morning looking at all the back to school pictures, I felt my eyes well up with tears.  I was sad to be missing all of the fun excitement that the first day of school brings.  But then, I saw a little girl standing up in her crib waiting for me to go get her and the tears went away.  I will always love and cherish my memories I had teaching school.  But, there is another job I know I'm supposed to be doing right now - being Lucy's Mom.  The job that has been engraved on my heart since I was born.  

So, here's to new beginnings!  I told Jared this morning that instead of having 1100 students everyday, I only had 1! (And to be honest, she's my favorite!)  I know that God has blessed me immensely with every job that I've had.  I pray for my new job - that I can have the patience and wisdom to run a Godly household.  I hope everyone that is teaching school or sending their kids to school have a great year!

I'll leave you with a picture of my cute "student" this year!
